Yep Hermi I share the feeling...

As for foot ball...I went out for right end and got left out...

had trouble with my back because I ran around my own end

one day it rained hard and I went in as a sub

the field was muddy that we had to paddle a

john boat..to get the ball across the goal post.

I mean our team was sunk..

The coach told me to make like a drum and beat it..

so I joined up with the marching band and beat time for

the next five years...and even then every body was out

of step but me.

One day at band practice it was sweltering hot there in

the cow pasture the corn popped in

the farmers field next door..and the cows thought it

was snowing and stood there and froze to death..

I got to catch some ZZZZ

Now if I return in my absence

just keep me here till I get back.

So I am going to put a hard question for you after all of this you have written..., Since Jesus equates hating with killing, then those who call themselves preachers, on this forum who hate Catholics, are they, or are they not following Jesus? Are they Christians, or only killers?
why don't you shut up! never have I ever saw GIF say that he hates a catholic just because they are a catholic and the same goes for me.

However I do despise liars and you are 1.

Were the following Bible only Church Fathers buffons or is it you.

I think the later

There is one God, whom we do not otherwise acknowledge, brethren, but out of the
Sacred Scriptures. For as he, who would profess the wisdom of this world cannot
otherwise attain it, unless he read the doctrines of the philosophers; so whosoever will
exercise piety towards God, can learn it no where but from the Holy Scriptures.
(St. Hippolytus c. 170-c.235, adv. Noetum, c. IX)

In the two testaments every word that pertaineth unto God may be sought and discussed,
and out of them all knowledge of things may be understood. And if anything remains
which Holy Scripture does not determine, no other third scripture ought to be received to
authorize any knowledge, but we must “commit to the fire” what remains, that is, reserve
it unto God.
(Origen c. 185-c.254, Hom. in Lev.)

The holy and divinely inspired writings are sufficient of themselves alone to make known
the truth.
(St. Athanasius 296-373, Orat. Contr. Gent. Tom. I)
If you desire a new quotation, if you pretend to affirm anything besides what is written,
why do you dispute with us, who are resolved to hear nothing, and to say nothing, besides
what is written?
(St. Athanasius, De Incarn. Chr.)
What the Scriptures have not declared, you will never find.
(St. Athanasius, De S. Trin. Dial.)

It is a mockery to ask questions, or to make discourses, on that which is not written.
(St. Athanasius, Epist. Ad. Serap.)
In the Holy Scriptures alone is the instruction of religion announced—to which let no
man add, from which let no man detract—which are sufficient in themselves for the
enunciation of the truth.
(St. Athanasius, adv. Gentes init.)
These are the fountains of salvation, that he who thirsts may be satisfied with the oracles
contained in them. In these alone the doctrine of salvation is contained. Let no man add
to, or take from them.
(St. Athanasius, Ex Festali Epistola XXXIX. Tom. II)

Do not believe me simply, unless you receive the proof of what I say from Holy Scripture.
(St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Catech. A.D. 348)
Keep that faith only which the Church is now giving to you and which is certificated out
of the whole of Scripture.
(St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Catech.)
Concerning the divine and holy mysteries of the faith, even the most casual remark ought
not to be delivered without the sacred Scriptures.
(St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Catech. IV.12)
It is evidently a falling away from the faith, and a proof of great presumption, to neglect
any part of what is written, or to introduce anything that is not written.
(St. Basil c. 329-379, bishop of Caesarea, de Vera Fide)
What is written, believe; what is not written, seek not to discover.

Bring me not human reasonings and syllogisms, for I rely on the divine Scripture alone.
(Theodoret of Cyrus c. 393-466, Dial. I. Atrept.)

Nope you are the Buffon for you put faith in false Apostles called Popes who go beyond that which is written, they have added to the word of God that which is not of God.

Lord have Mercy on them and those who believe the lie.

I think I now understand why you don't get as many responses to your posts as you would probably like.
a. You never address your posts to anyone. So, including me, I don't know why you are posting.
b. You are confusing the singular and plural aspects of your sentences. For example in the above:
"Jesus Christ words is perfect."
- this should actually read - "Jesus Christ's words are perfect."
- Notice how I added an apostrophe to the sentence to show ownership. Also, since you are speaking of Jesus' words, which are plural, you will need to include the plural verb "are", instead of the singular use of "is".
Okay - now you go and try.....I'm rooting for you!

What is Sola Scriptura?

The Latin "Sola Scriptura" means "Scripture Only," or "Scripture alone." This was one of the distinctive features of the Protestant Reformation and signaled the Reformed departure from alleged Papal infallibility and the authority of Romish tradition contained in the writings of the Church Fathers and oral tradition. Sola Scriptura does not mean that we cannot use other sources. It simply means that "all other sources" must submit to the sovereign truth found only in holy scripture. No man, no belief system, no personal view should be allowed in our churches, pulpits and classrooms that do not stand up to a close, in depth and arduous challenge to "Scripture Alone" as being the final source of truth!(The "catholicity" of American Baptists by Sam Hughey)
“First, it is necessary to understand what Sola Scriptura does and does not assert. The Reformation principle of Sola Scriptura has to do with the sufficiency of Scripture as our supreme authority in all spiritual matters. Sola Scriptura simply means that all truth necessary for our salvation and spiritual life is taught either explicitly or implicitly in Scripture. It is not a claim that all truth of every kind is found in Scripture. The most ardent defender of Sola Scriptura will concede, for example, that Scripture has little or nothing to say about DNA structures, microbiology, the rules of Chinese grammar, or rocket science. This or that "scientific truth" for example, may or may not be actually true, whether or not it can be supported by Scripture -- but Scripture is a "more sure Word," standing above all other truth in its authority and certainty. It is "more sure," according to the apostle Peter, than the data we gather firsthand through our own senses (2 Peter 1:19). Therefore, Scripture is the highest and supreme authority on any matter to which it speaks”,(Dr. John F. MacArthur, Jr. Sola Scriptura! The Protestant Position on the Bible, chapter 5)

As I just told 'hermie', the shock has now worn off and disgust is left in its place. I don't know why you did what you did, but it was ugly. It's left a very bad taste in my mouth.

I am strong but others are much more stronger then me.

Its very hard win who is always tall and strong.

Then I realize self-estimate is the best result.

You need be quick thinker thanks God I belong there.
Power of Believe can achieve something.

I start use parabola as geometric direction toward goal from each and certain position even far away never mist exact always win.

Never to much hurt from others they not expected but always when you win you enjoy better then others.
My enemy is always very jealous even love-ones!

Alligator Scars (Fiction)

Some years ago on a hot summer day in south Florida a little boy decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house.

In a hurry to dive into the cool water, he ran out the back door, leaving behind shoes, socks, and shirt as he went. He flew into the water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator was swimming toward the shore.

His mother - in the house was looking out the window - saw the two as they got closer and closer together. In utter fear, she ran toward the water, yelling to her son as loudly as she could.

Hearing her voice, the little boy became alarmed and made a U-turn to swim to his mother. It was too late. Just as he reached her, the alligator reached him.

From the dock, the mother grabbed her little boy by the arms just as the alligator snatched his legs. That began an incredible tug-of-war between the two. The alligator was much stronger than the mother, but the mother was much too passionate to let go. A farmer happened to drive by, heard her screams, raced from his truck, took aim and shot the alligator.

Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital, the little boy survived. His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious attack of the animal and, on his arms, were deep scratches where his mother's fingernails dug into his flesh in her effort to hang on to the son she loved.

The newspaper reporter who interviewed the boy after the trauma, asked if he would show him his scars. The boy lifted his pant legs. And then, with obvious pride, he said to the reporter, "But look at my arms. I have scars on my arms, too. I have them because my mom wouldn't let go."

You and I can identify with that little boy. We have scars, too. No, not from an alligator, or anything quite so dramatic. But, the scars of a painful past. Some of those scars are unsightly and have caused us deep regret.

But, some wounds, my friend, are because God has refused to let go.

In the midst of your struggle, He's been there holding on to you.

The Scripture teaches that God loves you.

If you have Christ in your life, you have become a child of God. He wants to protect you and provide for you in every way. But sometimes we foolishly wade into dangerous situations. The swimming hole of life is filled with peril - and we forget that the enemy is waiting to attack. That's when the tug-o-war begins - and if you have the scars of His love on your arms be very, very grateful.

He did not - and will not - let you go. Thank you Jesus. Amen.

Being both Catholic and Protestant is not a hard thing, when a person is a Christian.
The difficulty arises mostly in the doctrine.
The RCC being around, has a lot of history, and writings, which tends to need redefining to keep up with the age. So amassing such a large amount is very complex to deal with.
The Protestant areas are trying to keep up, and generally try and contrast their doctrines against a given(for the most part in the beginning it was the RCC, but more so now, against each other). Thus one amasses all Protestantism, it too becomes very complex to deal with.
There is always a group within each that wants to keep things simple. So it is better just to be a Christian, and lead a good life, than get to involved with doctrinal details.
